And time for some cards to!

I am in love with this linen paper - I love the results it gives when using my Koh I Noors! Perfect for bears or anything with fur! :) I made this first card for my mums BF, who was 46 yesterday! (Happy Birthday, Lawrence!). I have used my new cutters from Little Claire, and since using them, have placed an order for 4 sets of nesties! I know how everyone rants about them, and I werent to fussed at first, but I am hooked!

Onto my next card, I made this in mind for the Pollycraft Monday challenge. I have spent a good 2 hours trying to make a card, I first wanted to put tatty on a card {See my previous post!} but he kinda flopped, so I thought I would have a go with this image. I am not 100% happy with it, but it will do! I skipped the sentiment part though as the image itself has a sentiment on it... Hope I can still enter the challenge!

I finished Tatty yesterday - Fastest I have ever sticthed anything! So, I am hoping that thats my bug back!

Here he is anyway!

I am hooked on TT, and I know most people hate the backstitch, but I actually enjoyed it! My next TT is going to be 'A Big Heart' for my mum I think!

I havent left the earth...

lol incase you were wondering, I havent really been crafting much lately, although I cant say the same for spending on crafty stuff lol

I finally have my stitchy bug back, and am working on a tatty teddy design that I am hoping to make into a card! Will pop up some photos when I have finished him - I only started it today!

Hope you are all well xxx
